After Care for Medik8® Peels

Immediately after the treatment

Immediately after the peel, a skin-soothing restorative serum (for example Hydr8 B5 Serum and Calmwise Serum) and our post treatment cream Ultimate Recovery will have been applied to your skin. You are advised to leave on these preparations for the remainder of the day (and preferably overnight if no sunscreen was applied) to help comfort the skin and reduce peel-induced skin redness.

Within 24 hours following the treatment

To cleanse the skin, use a mild, non-exfoliating cleanser (such as Gentle Cleanse or Calmwise Soothing Cleanser). Flannels or sponges should be avoided. After cleansing, it is recommended to re-apply Hydr8 B5 Serum and Calmwise Serum and finish with our hydrating emollient cream Ultimate Recovery Intense. SPF 30 should be worn daily.

Do’s:

  • Treat the skin gently (stop using wash cloths and facial sponges)
  • Limit time outdoors (to minimise sun exposure)
  • Wear sun protection
  • Use soothing products: Calmwise Soothing Cleanser and Calmwise Serum and Hydr8 B5 Serum
  • Use antioxidant products: C-Tetra or C-Tetra+ Intense or Pure C15 or Super C30
  • Use skin-lightening products (optional) – if you are prone to hyperpigmentation, it is recommended that you commence a lightening treatment with our Pigmentation Solutions, for a minimum of two weeks post-peel.

Don’ts:

  • Do not expose the skin to sun or sun lamps
  • Do not use AHAs, BHAs, topical steroids, retinol or physical exfoliants for one week following a chemical peel treatment
  • Do not use facial masks
  • Do not use artificial tanning devices (including fake tan)
  • Do not use any cosmetic products that irritate the skin
  • If makeup is worn, Medik8 recommends mineral makeup
